Students are not allowed to carry medications on their person except inhalers, and that is only with a doctor's note on file in the nurse's office. These notes need to be renewed each year.
Students may not carry over-the-counter medications such as cough drops, or sore throat lozenges. The nurse may only give these to students. If a student has them at school, they need to drop them off to the nurse at the beginning of the day.
Over-the-counter medication forms may be filled out by a parent anytime throughout the school year for the nurse to be able to give acetaminophen, ibuprofen, antacids, or Benadryl without calling a parent. Forms can be found to the left under Medical Forms.
Physical Education (PE)
PE excuses may be given with a parent note for a total of three days per semester, any longer will require a doctor's note.
Please remind your students to come to the Health Office to be assessed by the nurse if not feeling well. Do not have them text or call you first. By following this procedure, it allows the nurse to monitor any illnesses that are prevalent in the school community. There are many ways to help your child feel better without having them go home. If they need to go home the nurse will call you. We appreciate your help with this matter.
